How to Charge a Vape Pen

Vape pens' portability as well as its fresh and rich taste have made them favorite among many vapers. The convenience of vape pens also makes them popular with beginners. 

Imagine a scenario like this: when you take out your vape pen to enjoy a nice hit, only to find that your device is run out of battery. There's nothing more disappointing than this, and you'll have to wait at least a few hours before vaping again. This guide will mainly describe how to properly charge the vape pen to ensure that you don’t experience a dead battery as much as possible. We'll also give you some tips to help you get the most out of your battery and keep it running steadily for a long time to come.

First of all, you need to figure out if your vape pen has a built-in battery or a removable battery. The charging process of the vape pen is related to the battery type. You can find this information in the user manual that came with your device. We will introduce how to charge your device according to the different battery type as below.


  • Charge your vape with a built-in battery

Usually a vape pen with a built-in battery will have a micro USB charge port or a type-c charge port, but there are also very few devices that use a special charging cable. If you didn't get one when you bought your vape pen, maybe you'll find one somewhere in your home. But if your device needs to be charged with a special cable, and you accidentally lose the charging cable, we can only recommend that you buy a new vape pen.

When you need to charge your vape pen, you can connect it directly to the charger and charge it (the other end of the micro-USB and type-c charging cables can be plugged into an adapter or laptop). If possible, use a new charging cable, as the connection can become fairly unstable over time and can lead to erratic charging.

 If your vape pen has an indicator light, it will light up when you charge the device and show the charging status by changing color or blinking frequency. Your vape pen will be fully charged usually after 1 to 4 hours, depending on the type of charger and the battery capacity of your device. After some devices are charged, the indicator light and product power will both turn off.


  • Charge your removable battery of vape pen

Removable batteries are usually charged via an external charger. One benefit of a removable battery is that you can replace it with a new one right away without having to wait for it be charged. If you want a trip, you can carry a few extra batteries and go without worrying about whether your vape pen will run out of power halfway.

When you're ready to charge, place the battery in the included external charger. If you don't have one, you can buy a suitable charger at the store. There should be a tiny click when the battery is in place. To keep track of the battery's charge, most external chargers have an indicator light or a screen. It only takes a few hours to fully charge your battery.


Besides, we have some tips to help you extend the battery life of your vape pen so you can enjoy your vaping better.

  1. Use standard batteries and chargers.You may have seen news of e-cigarettes or batteries burning or exploding when charging and began to doubt the safety of vape pens. But as long as you use a vape pen, battery or charger made by authorized manufacturers, there will be no problem. In addition, it is necessary to choose a suitable battery according to the working current of the vape pen. After all, not all batteries can be adapted to the vape pen.
  2. Don'tOvercharge the Batteries. It is very convenient to leave the electronic cigarette in the charger overnight. However, this causes the battery to drain faster. Continuing to charge the battery at full capacity will damage the battery, so avoid to do this!

Don't completely drain the battery. If you want the battery to run steadily, it's a bad idea to drain the battery before charging. The best time to charge is when the battery is below 50%.
